Kraft Kitchens Tips

Shortcut
Use a small ice cream scoop with a release mechanism to easily shape the meat mixture into balls.
Food Facts
When purchasing ground beef, check the label to ensure meat has been ground on the day of purchase. If you can't use meat immediately, wrap it tightly and freeze until ready to use. For best quality, use within 2 months.
